My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

THANKS A BUNCH

Hi Everyone

Well here I am .. .. much earlier today.

I'm just about to start a big printing and cutting job so decided I would post first (if only to make sure that Katina can get to bed early .. .. she won't go to bed until I have posted and she has found the heart .. .. .. and I have been making her very late just recently!!  Sorry Katina!!  LOL!!).

Tonight's share uses a stamp I bought from the sale at Dunelm .. .. such a cute image and one that can be used for lots of occasions.  Mother's Day, birthday, congratulations, thank you, get well soon .. .. sorry I'm late .. .. and just plain sorry!!  

I think I had better stop there or my hubby might say I don't need any other stamps .. .. I can just use this one for everything!!  Eeeeekkk!!!





This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Fizzy Moon "FZCS01" Thanks a Bunch
Backing Papers:  Pink papers = Pink Petticoat   Brown Paper = Nitwits
ProMarkers
My Trusty Sewing Machine
Pearls from the Stash Box
White Gel Pen

So that is me for today.

Time to get the kettle on for a cuppa ahead of clearing the decks ready to get cracking .. .. then hopefully a blog catch up later if all goes to plan.

Have a lovely evening everyone.  

Love

Lol!! Thank you Jules! I've run out of matchsticks to keep my eyes open so this has come just at the right time ;o)

Absolutely beautiful card! Your colouring is perfect and I love the way you've added the pearls to the flowers. The papers are gorgeous and of course I love the stitching. I must be tired as I couldn't 'see' the hearts for about 5 minutes, lol!!

Hi Jules - love the card... pink and brown are a lovely combo and the bear is beautifully coloured. Can I ask - when you use your sewing machine, do you glue your pieces together first (I hope that sentence makes sense!!!) just wondering!!! tfs
